Broad Ripple High School is still growing by leaps 
and bounds! In 1886, when five high school courses 
were first offered at Ripple, one principal-teacher 
taught seven students. Now, in 1959, 103 faculty 
members are needed to teach 149 courses to 2,000 
pupils. With Ripple experiencing constant growing 
pains, steps to alleviate crowded conditions started 
with ground-breaking this spring for a new million- 
dollar addition. Ripple is growing not only in size, 
but in academic achievement, A member of the 
North Central Association of Colleges and Second- 
ary Schools, Ripple has earned a place among the 
country's top 44 schools in scientific preparation. 

Growing along with the school is the surrounding 
community. When the high school was founded, the 
Ripple area boasted only 487 inhabitants. This popu- 
lation increased to 1,459 by 1923 when the Ripple 
area was annexed to theclty. Now, Ripple's 
community has swelled to nearly 25,000 people. 



Outlining future building plans,

Ripplites work, shop, 

Growing business districts serve the rapidly ex- 
panding Broad Ripple area. Modern architecture 
and newly widened streets add convenience and 
attractiveness to the community. 

In addition to shopping for up-to-date merchan- 
dise in the modern stores, Ripplites assume respon- 
sibility in community life by finding employment. 

Recreation needs of the community are satisfied 
as young and old find enjoyment and relaxation 
in Broad Ripple Park. 

Building their futures, Ripplites save first, spend later. Window shopping, Ripple students look for better buys. 

Deserted at night, the wet streets of Broad Ripple reflect the business lights.

Community and school plan joint projects 

Parents, as well as pupils, take an active part in 
school projects. Ripple dads opened the year with 
their annual fish fry, initiating a record hop on the 
tennis courts as an added feature. A banquet hon- 
oring BRHS faculty was another Fathers' Associa- 
tion activity. 

Later, the Association of Parents and Teachers 
sponsored the colorful "Harvest Festival" carnival. 
An APT open house evening of miniature summit 
talks between parents, teachers, and pupils helped 
promote better understanding. 

Parents not only take part in school projects, but 
also attend Ripple classes. This year, 235 parents 
and other members of the community, wielding 
pencils, paintbrushes, and scissors invaded Ripple's 
classrooms to take night school courses ranging 
from advanced French to upholstering. 

Mmm boy! exclaim Steve Overbeck, Ken Hurst, and Jay 
Keghley, sampling food at Fathers' Association Fish Fry. 

At College Night, pupils and parents listen to Sterling 
L. Show, Purdue's Associate Director of Admissions. 

"Try a shot!" cry the lettermen at their carnival booth.

future shows more to come 

Ripple's overflowing halls attest the record- 
breaking enrollment of 2000 students. The fresh- 
man classes of the last two years have been the 
largest in the school's history. 

A new addition, costing nearly a million dollars, 
will partially relieve the crowded conditions. Con- 
struction of the new wing, started early in '59, will 
be followed by the tearing down of the oldest sec- 
tion of the building for replacement by a modern 
classroom structure.

Ripple grows in world understanding 

Austria and Holland meet as exchange students Evy Stone 
and Harry Dawson compare costumes of summers abroad. 

Rolling out the welcome mat to its second Ameri- 
can Field Service student. Ripple greeted Wolfgang 
Pfeifer, a tall, blond, blue-eyed German youth. Shy 
at first and shaky about his English, "Wolf" soon 
fell into the swing of things. Quickly catching en- 
thusiasm for sports, he became student manager 
of the Rockets' football team. He seemed aston- 
ished at the number of American cars and liked the 
bright colors of American clothes. Wolfgang lived 
with the A. W. Nelsons during his American stay. 
By talking to Wolf and learning his views. Ripple 
pupils gained more world understanding. 

In exchange, two Ripplites went abroad. The 
task of choosing Ripple's exchange students started 
with the school's AFS committee members, who 
composed a list of four applicants. The final selec- 
tion came when the New York AFS office notified 
Harry Dawson and Evelyn Stone of their accept- 
ance as AFS students. 

Harry sailed for the Netherlands early in the 
summer. Holland, he remarks, was as he hoped it 
would be— "an unassuming, unhurried land, hav- 
ing a pleasant soothing effect on the spirit." Flying 
to Austria, Evy stayed with families in Vienna and 
Steyr. Good food, lasting friendships, and a week 
on the Mediterranean made her summer's trip a 
wonderful one. 

Furthering world understanding here in the 
United States, the Social Studies Department sent 
Dolli Jegen on a three-day tour of the United Na- 
tions' Headquarters.

Homecoming sparks spirit and enthusiasm 

Homecoming Queen Patty Gates flashes a winning smile. 

Lovely queens, clever floats, traditional mums, 
and an exciting football game marked Ripple's 
1 958 Homecoming as a memorable one in the eyes 
of the school and community. As the longest parade 
ever traveled through the Ripple business district, 
the sidewalks were lined with parents, relatives, 
and busy shoppers. 

Half-time ceremonies of the football game with 
the Howe Hornets brought the crowd's roar of 
approval at the announcement of the Homecom- 
ing Queen and the winning floats. The Queen was 
chosen by Alumni Association judges from five 
finalists elected by the student body. 

Although planning for the eighth annual Home- 
coming started weeks before October 3, everyone 
felt the last-minute scurry the night before. This an- 
nual event co-sponsored by the Broad Ripple Stu- 
dent Council and Alumni Association was climaxed 
by an after-game dance, the "Autumble Jumble." 

"Congratulations!" exclaims 1 957 Homecoming Queen Suzi Lesh, who crowned Patty for 1 958. 


"More napkins over here," calls a 
GAA float worker. Long hours and 
lots of fun went into float making. 
Alumni judges chose the Future Busi-

Ripplites gain recognition for achievement 

Any parent who worries that academics are not 
receiving enough emphasis in modern high schools 
should be comforted by the performances of aca- 
demically-minded Ripplites whose scholarship 
awards total $100,000 annually. This year, for 
instance, a record eleven seniors qualified as Na- 
tional Merit Scholarship finalists. Ripple had the 
city's highest percentage of students in the top 90th 

Always taking an active part in Indiana Univer- 
sity's High School Achievement Program, Ripple re- 
ceived 20 per cent of the gold medals in 1958 by 
winning in English, Math, and Spanish. 

As a school Ripple ranks high educationally, 
having received its eighth Freedoms Foundation 
Award and its third Principal School Award.

ffie four diploma plan for improved curriculum 

^<rx i 

A critical class in Advanced Composition listens as Margaret Durham reads a theme aloud. 

Languages stress composition, literature 

by Connie Corson 

Language ranks high in importance on Ripple's 
ladder of learning. Pupils are ofFered many oppor- 
tunities in advanced study of literature, composi- 
tion, grammar, and four foreign languages. 

Pupils are required to take English I through 
English VI courses for graduation, and a student 
may be placed in "g," regular, or "s" classes. Eng- 
lish lllg and VIg courses include added instruction 
in journalism while other "g" courses cover more 
material than regular classes. 

A Ripple senior may choose from a variety of 
courses. English VII and VIII cover English history 
and literature. For drill and review, a pupil may 
elect Senior Composition or Advanced Composition 
and Grammar. Creative Writing is offered for the 
talented writer who wants to develop his skills. 

Outstanding works by students enrolled in Eng- 
lish classes are recognized annually at the Ripple 
Arts Salon by the awarding of ribbons for the best 
literary works in each division. 

Improving her reading rate, Nancy Henry, supervised 
by Mrs. Ruth Herin, uses a pacer in Ripple's modern lab. 


Library Science acquaints students with Ripple's 
well-stocked library and teaches them funda- 
mentals of library service. Speech therapy helps 
those who have trouble pronouncing words. 

Actors and debaters may also elect courses from 
the English Department. Dramatics I and II appeal 
to those interested in the stage while many stu- 
dents find Speech interesting and helpful. 

Etymology or the study of words links the English 
and Language departments. Pupils study word 
prefixes, suffixes, and stems and increase their 
speaking and writing vocabularies. 

With the world shrinking more and more every 
day, language understanding is becoming increas- 
ingly important for world unity. Latin, French, 
Spanish, and German are available at Ripple. 

Pupils enrolled in these classes not only learn 
fundamental grammar rules and vocabulary, but 
gain practice speaking the modern languages in 
the classroom. Culture and customs are stressed for 
added understanding of foreign nations. In ad- 
vanced classes, students read national literature 
and study the country's history. Latin students in- 
crease their comprehension of Roman life and gov- 
ernment by making projects illustrating phases of 
this ancient empire. 

Vocabulary detectives Doug Atkins, Paula Barbour, and 
Jim Atlas read articles using words taught in Etymology. 

Source theme success is sought by Linda Medley, Mary 
Lou Newburn, and George King as they sort note cards. 

Provincias, or Spanish provinces are pointed out on a 
map by Miss Margaret Coombs to Freshman Bill Stone. 


Modern progress! Dr. Lowell Hicks proudly conducts 
Julia Beaman through Broad Ripple's new miniature 
chemistry laboratory opened during the spring semester. 

A modern school answers a timely question! 
Broad Ripple's ability to meet the challenge of 
education for tomorrow has come to the fore- 
ground this year according to the latest statistics on 
science and mathematics enrollments. This trend of 
enrollments has placed Ripple in front of all other 
city schools in this aspect. 

"With the addition of calculus as an accredited 
course the number of subjects in our curriculum has 
reached its maximum," explains Dr. Glen Van- 
natta, head of the Mathematics Department. He 
stated that Ripple is now one of the few schools in 
the state to offer twelve semesters of mathematics 
including Analytic Geometry and Calculus. A 
double major of twelve credits in one branch of 
learning is the limit for high schools according to 
the laws of Indiana. 

Mr. John E. Williams, head of the Science De- 
partment, says, "The new chemistry laboratory 
will help to relieve the congested situation caused 
by the students' trend toward science courses." The 
cost of the laboratory is estimated at $18,000. 
Among the modern facilities of the laboratory is a 
"fume hood," an instrument which is used to re- 
move unpleasant or poisonous gases from the air. 

"Stop the clock!" exclaims Dave Epstein to Jim Young 
and Eddie Reeve as they time a pendulum cycle. The boys 

need to watch carefully, take accurate notes, and count 
arcs to complete successfully this Physics experiment. 


Science, math answer education challenge 

b/ Da /fe Epstein 

The present laboratory space is insufficient for 
the number of pupils enrolled in science courses. 
The crowded situation in the biology classes caused 
by the new graduation requirement of two years of 
science has been somewhat relieved with the con- 
version of two more classrooms to biology labs. 
This brings the total of completely equipped sci- 
ence laboratories in Broad Ripple to eight, and the 
number of biology laboratories to four. 

"Are we teaching enough mathematics and 
science?" is the big question confronting the 
schools. Satisfying the demands of students, teach- 
ers, and Mr. John Q. Public is the problem facing 
the Mathematics and Science Departments this 
year. Broad Ripple is meeting this challenge with 
added facilities and courses. 

An analytical diagram is constructed and labeled for clar- 
ity by Kenny Carr for Jim Bush and Bill Bogigian in their 
Analytical Geometry Class, an advanced Math course. 

Graph plotter Susan McCord points out charted elliptical 
curves to Dr. Glen Vannatta, Dave Larson, and Ray Ward.

Discussing European History, Wolf Pfeifer, exchange student, talks to a World History class. 

World problems need added understanding 

by Linda Bender 

Economic principles are pointed out by Mr. Curtis Weigel. 

Citizenship, the Social Science Department's 
main aim, is emphasized in each of its varied sub- 
jects ranging from World History I to Psychology. 
These courses help bring about an understanding 
of social laws and practices that underlie good ef- 
fective living in today's v/orld. Nine different 
courses are offered in this department at Ripple. 

Freshmen learn the history of mankind from the 
beginning of recorded time to the present in World 
History. America's colorful history is recalled in 
U. S. History, while Government and Economics 
stress the functions and problems faced by the 
government and businesses today. 

Everything from wind currents to the location of 
the tiny country of Liechtenstein is covered in the 
Geography course of study. Interested students can 
study vital world situations in Contemporary His- 
tory and International Relations. 

Appreciating heritage, Mike Lamm looks at the Free- 
doms Foundation poster illustrating constitutional rights. 

Ku Klux Klanner, Steve Smalley, models a replica of 
the secret society's costume for his class in U. S. History. 

Pan American History concerns the Latin coun- 
tries—their European backgrounds and their pend- 
ing problems. 

Ripplites enrolled in this department correlate 
their studies with extra activities and projects. For 
a week before elections, Social Studies pupils and 
teachers present to the school a series explaining 
voting procedure. Returning a verdict is a problem 
confronted by some as they experience jury duty 
at the mock trials conducted by Indiana University 
law students. Pupils interested in current topics in 
national and world news broadcast group dis- 
cussions on Junior Town Meeting. 

This year, essays on "Our American Heritage" 
were written by 1200 students in the department 
in connection with the Freedoms Foundation. Note- 
books were compiled by a government class and 
a display in the school library depicted the various 
facets of the freedoms enjoyed by United States 
citizens. To culminate the Freedoms Foundation 
activities, a television program was presented in 
November discussing the Foundation and Broad 
Ripple's contribution. 

South American momentos are admired by Bob Nelson, 
Sorajone Terry, John Clark, Pan American History pupils. 


Pupils learn practical application of skills 

by Laurie Tether 

A buzz of band saws, an appetizing aroma of 
spice cake and cookies, a clack-clack of busy type- 
writers . . . these are characteristics of Broad 
Ripple's practical arts departments, training stu- 
dents to be better businessmen, secretaries, archi- 
tects, and homemakers. 

The Business Education Department offers 
courses in junior business training, business arith- 
matic, typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, retail sell- 
ing, office practice, and business law. Acquainting 
students with modern office equipment, the de- 
partment prepares them for business occupations. 

The Industrial Arts Department offers courses in 
mechanical drawing and advanced drawing. 
These courses are necessary for architects and for 
those who plan to enter skilled trades. Modern ma- 
chinery helps students in shop classes gain valu- 
able experience needed for careers in engineering 
and industry.

Physical and mental fitness play an important 
part in the Physical Education Department, also. 
Basic skills and body conditioning are stressed 
through inter-squad competition in gym classes. 

Driver Education classes burst their seams as 
seven instructors and three automatic transmission 
Chevrolets worked to prepare fifteen year olds for

music encourage 

The artistic skill which is found in abundance 
around Broad Ripple is given the chance to develop 
in the Art and Music departments. These depart- 
ments, provided for students with ability in these 
fields, develop talent and appreciation for fine arts 
and music. 

Ripple's Art Department now offers General Art 
l-IV, Jewelry, Ceramics, and Craft Art. General Art 
VII and VIII are offered to students wishing to con- 
tinue in the art field. 

The projects undertaken by the art classes have 
helped to make Ripple festive during the holiday 
seasons. Cornucopias, made by Mr. Ferd Brum- 
blay's classes, decorated the tables at the all-city 
principals' meeting shortly before Thanksgiving. 

Mr. Virgel Clark sponsored the decorating of 
windows for the Christmas season. The ceramics 
class made a scene portraying the Nativity scene, 
while another, displaying Santa Clous in a jet 
plane, was built by the Craft Art class. Eight 
stained glass windows, designed and painted by 
Miss Doris Brinkman's Advanced Art VII and VIII 
class, were displayed in the library. 

Ripple's instrumental and vocal music groups 
spread Broad Ripple's fame through the many per- 
formances they present during the year. The en- 
thusiasm of the marching band, under the direction 
of Mr. Wallace Decker, livens up the half time at 
football games. Advanced students perform in the 
A Band, while students enrolled in the beginning 
classes compose the B Band. 

The orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Paul 
Brown, ploys an important part in many school 
activities. The beginning instrumental courses pre- 
pare students for the later advancements and ac- 
tivities in the A Orchestra. 

The Golden Singers, directed by Mr. Gene

Ripple faculty grows in size, achievement 

by Betsey Ewbank 

Ripple's growing faculty combines education 
and enthusiasm in the classroom and community. 
Providing this interest is the teaching staff of 100 
and the administrative staff of three, boasting two 
doctors and 60 masters degrees. 

Besides classroom duties. Ripple teachers have 
found time to write and serve in administrative 
positions. Miss Melba Schumacher, Mrs. Ruth 
Marie Griggs, Dr. Glen Vannatta, and Mr. John 
Williams are textbook authors in their respective 
fields. Mrs. Ruth Woods has helped write a booklet. 

Holding offices in professional organizations is 
a common faculty activity. Mr. Paul Rutenkroger 

and Mr. Robert Eisenbarth serve as treasurers of 
the Indianapolis Educational Association and the 
History Teachers Association, respectively. 

Mrs. Ruth Herin serves as a Director-at-large of 
the National Council of Teachers of English. Mr. 
Wallace Decker has assumed the duties of Chair- 
man of Class A schools for the Indiana School of 
Music Association. 

Always growing in size and achievement. Rip- 
ple acquired three teachers the spring semester. 
Mrs. Norma Perry and Miss Jean Hoilman joined 
the Business Education Department and Mrs. Mary 
K. Jensen, the Foreign Language Department. 

Administrative authorities viewing plans for Ripple's 
new wing are, STANDING: Mr. Roger Riley, Mr. Harold K. 

Harding, and Mr. Warren K. Jackson. SEATED: Mr. J. Fred 
Murphy, Miss Ruth B. Carter, and Mr. B. L. Stonecipher. 


"Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow," recites Dean 
Carter from one of her favorites, Shakespeare's Macbeth. 

Fond memories of hard work as publications sponsor are 
recalled by Miss Carter as she reads an old Riparian. 

Word of the retirement of Miss Ruth B. Carter, 
dean of girls for 31 years, brought a note of nostal- 
gia into the school life of both faculty and students. 
It will be difficult to replace such a devoted teacher 
and advisor. Dean Carter has v/atched Ripple grow 
from 250 to 2,050 in what she describes as "very 
enjoyable work." 

Besides teaching English and Latin, Miss Carter 

has done much in pioneering at Ripple. She started 
the Orange Aid; and after organizing the Riparian 
Newspaper, she was publications sponsor for ten 
years. The founding of Ripple Art's Salon and 
Golden Singers can also be attributed to her. In ad- 
dition. Miss Carter has sponsored cheerleaders. 

Miss Carter's work at Broad Ripple will long be 
appreciated and remembered.

Ripples star spies, harems, clowns, Naptown 

by Harry Dawson 

Studying, sleeping, and socializing, students take time 
out from a busy Ripples rehearsal to relax off stage. 

Peeking into hidden corners of old toyshops, Sul- 
tan's harems, scientific laboratories, and the 500 
Speedway, the writer-directors of the Ripples of 
1959 discovered new and colorful entertainment 
ideas which made this year's Ripples fun for both 
audience and cast. 

In "Space Satire" by Jane Jackson and Rosemary 
Garrigus, four distraught scientists outwitted re- 
porters, Russian spies, and girl "Cuteniks" to suc- 
cessfully launch a rocket from Ripple's stage. 

Judy Johnston and Georgia Lupear guided the 
audience on a gay and fanciful tour of Indianapolis 
in their act "All Around the Town." 

The walls of Jeritol tumbled and King Kufu left 
his harem and jewels to flee the Brute's invasion of 
Egypt in "Great Day" written by Pam Chowning, 
Linda Kitzmiller, and Marianne Grove. 

The tale of a night in a fantastic toyshop where 
all the toys are alive was told by Markianne Co- 
field, Diane Kipfer, and Carol Wrennick, whose act, 
"La Boutique Fantastique," rounded out the four 
acts of the biggest, brightest Ripples ever. 

Raggedy Andy, Lyie Mannweiler, grins crookedly as he 
and Raggedy Ann, Connie Corson, cut capers for "four- 
year-old" Alan Stanford and Grandfather Clock, Jim Bush. 

Satyrical scientists Wally Orr, Bill Johnson, and Lorry 
Morrison consider a weighty matter — whether or not 
to launch "Cutenik" Barb Larson into the audience. 


Interviewing other leads of "Great Day," Ray Bowman 
as Ambrose Bouillon talks to Judie Baskwell and 
Judy Church, jewels, and Pharoah Buddy Krause. 

On a tour of the town, Ail-American Boy Steve Von 
Meter and Cat Mike Kelley observe the antics of Patty 
Dickinson, street cleaner, and Charley Deck, hula girl. 

Ripples Directors— Marianne Grove, Pam Chowning, Judy 
Johnston, Georgia Lupear, Rosemary Garrigus, Diane 
Kipfer, Markianne Cofield, Carol Wrennick. Not pic- 

tured are Linda Kitzmiller and Jane Jackson. Worries 
about costumes, choreography, and combos keep direc- 
tors hopping until the curtain rises on opening night. 


Before ... in old slacks and sweat shirts, Nancy Camp- 
bell and the boys' chorus look like typical Ripplites. 

After ... on the Operetta's opening night, it's a smooth, 
sophisticated cast performing in front of the footlights. 

'Widow' caught in web of comedy, romance 

"With dancers swaying, music playing," the cur- 
tain rises on the Golden Singers' operetta. The 
Merry Widow, o romantic comedy by Franz Lehar. 
Six weeks of memorization and rehearsal, staging 
and costuming, hard work and late hours culmi- 
nate in two evenings of mirthful entertainment for 
the 1,300 people packing the school auditorium. 

Commands such as "Enunciate your words,- 
I have to hear them back here!" and "It's funny; 
can't you react to what he's saying?" had rung out 
as rehearsals progressed under the direction of 
Miss Ruth Bertsch, Mrs. Rosalee Hofmann, and Mr, 
Gene Poston. Then the long hours of practice paid 
off; the words and music became a living story. 

As the plot develops, Mrs. Adele Talbot, a lovely 
young widow played by Nancy Campbell, meets 
the dashing Prince Nikolas of Altruria, who is 
played by Floyd Edwards, at a wealthy seaside 
resort in America. It is "love at first sight," but there 
are many complications. Miss Beatrice Killgarden, 
a snoopy gossip-columnist played by Judy Smay, 
does more than her part to confuse the picture for 
the prince and the widow. More problems are pre- 
sented by the arrival of Princess Stephanie, Prince 
Nikolas' affianced bride, and the constant attempts 
of Montgomery Nelson, Adele's American lover, 
to woo her. All these problems are settled in music 
and merriment. 

Adding color and a touch of sophistication to the 
performance is a group of wealthy American so- 


by Evelyn Stone 

cialites consisting of Mrs. Van Orden, Barbara Batt; 
Mrs. Vera Randolph, Dolli Jegen; Clarissa Preston, 
Carol Galbraith; Berton Preston, Alan Stanford; 
Ethel Van Orden, Joyce Peace; and Hartley Lang- 
don, Steve Brownlee. 

A boys' chorus line, five can-can dancers from 
Paris, and a lilting waltz number give the produc- 
tion humor and spice. 

By the way, the prince marries the widow, and 
they live happily ever after. 

With ears perked, gossip columnist Judy Smay (far 
right) listens for stray bits of news as Dolli Jegen 
and Barb Batt (seated) talk to Princess Diane Heaton 
and socialites Carol Galbraith and Sylvia Trumbull. 

Preparing a costume to be worn in the "Ladies" number 
are Mr. Gene Poston and Miss Ruth Bertsch, directors. 

Love triumphs! Nancy Campbell and Floyd Edwards sing 
joyously as the Operetta reaches a happy conclusion. 

"Lovely ladies, lovely ladies, an enigma through and of Montgomery Nelson, Jefferson Randolph, Bertie Pres- 

through" sing Wendy Myers, George Poor, Alan Stanford, ton, and Prince Nikolas of Altruria in the Golden Singers 

and Floyd Edwards, as they humorously fill the roles annual operetta, The Merry Widow, by Franz Lehar.

Instrumentalists keep Ripple at high pitch 

Practice, fun, and programs fill the schedules of 
the 66 music-minded students who are members 
of Broad Ripple's Orchestra. 

Rehearsals for such events as the Operetta, the 
annual Christmas program, state contests, the Or- 
chestra Auditorium, and the Ripple Round-up keep 
Orchestra members busy every day, but not too 
busy to enjoy a spring tour of several nearby grade 
schools. Entertaining the young audiences encour- 
ages future Ripplites to enroll in music groups. 

by Cindy Cunningham 

Eighteen members of the Broad Ripple Orchestra 
participate in the All-City High School Orchestra, 
a group of top musicians from all eight of the city's 
public high schools. These students v/ork approxi- 
mately three hours every Saturday morning during 
the fall semester preparing for extra programs and 
a television show in January. This year, Ripplite 
Cindy Cunningham was selected as representative 
to the All-City Orchestra Council, the group's gov- 
erning body. The All-City Orchestra has 69 
participating members. 

The Dance Band, placing first as an all-school 
band in the Dance Band Contest under the direction 
of Mr. Paul Brown, is composed of 28 members, 
each a member of Ripple's Band or Orchestra. The 
Dance Band plays for many school and community 
dances, including the Military Ball and "after 
game" dances. The Ripples, pep sessions, and Fa- 
thers' Association and Association of Parents and 
Teachers meetings are also included in their busy 
entertainment schedule.

Students who like music and like to experiment 
with hi-fi and radio equipment are members of the 
Radio Hi-Fi Club. With the assistance of Mr. Brown 
as sponsor, these students have constructed a stere- 
ophonic record player valued at approximately 
$500. This is used by the club's 30 members to 
listen to stereo records which they bring from home 
and by music appreciation classes to receive the 
full musical value of the classical compositions that 
they enjoy and evaluate.

Ripple's high-steppers 

Winning the Kiwanis Award for the "Most Im- 
proved Bond in the City," the Broad Ripple Rocket 
Band brings additional honor to Ripple this year. 
The 80 members of the Band under the direction of 
Mr. Wallace Decker practice many hours to prepare 
interesting intermission shows for football games, 
to perfect music and marching for parades, and to 
put together a variety of programs for presentation 
to the school and community during the year. 

In addition to appearing at football games and 
parades, the high-stepping group displays its 
marching and playing abilities on a day set aside 
especially for that purpose. Band Recognition Day. 
This year's tribute to the bands of Indianapolis, 
held October 1 8 on the World War Memorial Plaza 
and directed by Meredith "Music Man" Wilson, will 
become an annual event to show the city's pride in

will be given o plaque for its port in the program. 
Another fall activity is Band Tag Day, with mem- 
bers of the Band selling tags to students and local 
merchants to raise money for band equipment. The 
Band's 1958 earnings of $500 are being used to 
buy white spats and gloves. 

Aiding the Band in marching performances are 
the majorettes and flag twirlers who also bring 
honors to Ripple by winning awards in district and 
state baton and flag-twirling contests. The high- 
stepping strutting of these girls marching at the 
head of the band in their bright orange and white 
uniforms adds pep and color to the groups grid- 
iron performances. 

After each November the Band changes from a 
marching band to a concert band. Among the pro- 
grams the Concert Band presents are the the Christ- 
mas auditorium and the annual Bond auditorium 
in the spring. Preparing for the State High School

"The Paper Caper," the annual Riparian Dance, climaxes the 1958 subscription campaign. 

Headaches, hard work produce newspaper 

Riparian royalty who reigned over the 1958 Riparian 
Dance in October are Nancy Holle and Fred Schlegel. 

by Wally Orr 

Scurrying reporters, bustling editors, and busy 
advisors may be seen working far into dusk at fhe 
Riparian Newspaper Office on deadline night. 

Each of the 97 staff members from name-checker 
to editor-in-chief has a definite job essential to the 
production of the newspaper which has won Quill 
and Scroll's top honor rating for ten years. The 
stories which compose the paper are begun by 
reporters who write up information they gather by 
covering weekly beats. Reporters submit their 
stories to the copy desk for copyreading and cor- 
rection; then the copy desk puts headlines on the 
stories and sends them on to the page editors. 
Making out tentative page layouts and being sure 
that stories fit the space allotted them is the job of 
the page editors. 

Next, stories and headlines are printed on galley 
proofs and pinned on the layouts. The galleys are 
proofread, definite page layouts are determined, 
and the galleys are pasted on the layouts. Then the 
paper goes to press. The finished product, the 
Riparian weekly is distributed in homerooms on 
Thursday mornings. 

Organizing the Riparian subscription campaign 
is the job of the circulation staff. With a humorous 
auditorium and myriads of posters, they boosted 
1959 subscription sales to a record of 1,800 in a 
school of 2,000. The campaign climaxes annually 
with the crowning of Miss and Mr. Riparian at the 
Riparian Dance. 

Pondering proofs are Riparian Newspaper editors 
Steve Olin, Karen West, Tom Clay, Liz Kraft, Fred 
Schlegel, Dave Epstein, Kathy Raasch, and John Lance.

Yearbook receives tenth Ail-American rating 

by Judy Gilliom 

The clack of typewriters, the scratch of copy pen- 
cils, and the laughter of 44 enthusiastic staff mem- 
bers are equally familiar in the Riparian Yearbook 
Office. Sometimes open from 8:00 in the morning 
to 6:00 at night, the Yearbook Office is the scene 
of unceasing activity. Here, surrounded by signs 
reading "Thimk" and "Beware the Editor," Riparian 
staflFers work hard to create in the yearbook a 
memorable account of Ripple's school year. Endless 
hours of taking pictures, cropping, typing, copy- 
reading, composing, and proofreading are com- 
bined with aspirin and midnight oil to produce the 
award-winning Riparian yearbook. 

The work of the staff and its sponsors, Mrs. Ruth 
Marie Griggs and Mrs. Julia Jean Rhodes, pays 
dividends in honors for Broad Ripple High School. 
In 1 958, for the tenth consecutive year, the Riparian 
Yearbook was awarded the National Scholastic 
Press Association's All-American Rating. Also, three 
of the 37 staffers who attended summer press in- 
stitutes won journalism scholarships; eight others 
won awards for outstanding work in fields ranging 
from yearbook editing and photography to news- 
writing and layout. Ripplites from both the year- 
book and newspaper staffs attend summer 
institutes at Florida State University, Indiana Uni- 
versity, Northwestern University, the University 
of Michigan, and the University of Missouri for 
periods of five days to five weeks. 

Forty-nine signs! Freshman Sarah Buchanan examines 
part of the signs in the Riparian office collection.

"Got it!" are heard coming from Photo Staff mem- 
bers. Sponsored by Mrs. Julia Jean Rhodes, these 
shutter snappers are kept busy taking pictures for 
the News Bureau, the Riparian Newspaper, and 
the Riparian Yearbook. 

The selling of ads by the ad staff to local mer- 
chants provides one of the chief sources of income 
for the Riparian Newspaper and Yearbook. 

Riparian Staffers look forward to the Journalism 
Awards Dinner in May, At this dinner students are 
honored for the work they have done during the

Programs, popcorn, AFS occupy honoraries 

by Liz Kraft 

At Broad Ripple High School, honor and service 
go hand in hand. 

The 36 members of Key Club, boys' honorary 
organization affiliated with the Kiv\/anis Club and 
sponsored by Mr. Warren K. Jackson, sell programs 
at home football and basketball games, clothe a 
child at Christmas, and organize the Freshman- 
Sophomore Career Day. This year, together with 
the Shortridge chapter, they also worked to pro- 
mote good sportsmanship at the Ripple-Shortridge 
football game. 

Working with the American Field Service to 
bring a foreign exchange student to Ripple, plan- 
ning Homecoming, and sponsoring the Clean-Up 
Campaign are major services of Ripple's Student 
Council. Composed of annually elected delegates 
from each class and sponsored by Dr. R. Lowell 
Hicks and Mr. John Morris, the council serves as a 
link between the student body and the administra- 
tion in discussing problems as well as activities. 

Outstanding character, scholarship, leadership, 
and service are standards for membership in the 
National Honor Society. This highly selective group. 


sponsored by Miss Margaret Coombs and Mr. Al- 
bert Mahin, gives a Christmas party for needy chil- 
dren, tutors other students, and sells popcorn and 
ice cream at home basketball games. Electing 
members annually, the Honor Society consists of 
approximately five percent of the student body. 

Peddling programs are Key Club Officers Steve Van 
Meter, Harry Dawson, Fred Schlegel, and Ray Bowman.

Ripple service clubs v/ork to better v/orld 

by John Lance 

Endeavoring to maintain high ideals in the 
school and community. Broad Ripple's service 
clubs push constantly ahead tov/ard their goal of 
"broader, richer, human service." All of Ripple's 
co-curricular clubs are service-minded, but several 
were formed vs^ith this specific purpose in mind. 

To maintain a high standard of Christian living 
in the school and community is the main purpose 
of the Hi-Y and Tri-Hi-Y Clubs. Hi-Y is sponsored 
by Mr. Robert Eisenbarth and Tri-Hi-Y by Mrs. Lu- 
nette Keesling and Mrs. Janet Blocker. In accord- 
ance v/ith their purpose these two clubs partici- 
pated in the Muscular Dystrophy Teen March, sent 
delegates to the Model United Nations, and fed 
families at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Also, the 
clubs sponsored booths at Ripple's carnival and a 
Christmas dance. The Mistletoe Madness. Pam 
Krabbenhoft reigned over the dance as Ripple's 
first Miss Mistletoe. 

The Orange Aid, an organization composed of 
all Ripple girls, is the largest service group at Rip- 
ple. The main objective of this organization is to 
welcome incoming freshman girls, which it does by 
sponsoring the Freshman Orientation Tea, and 

providing freshmen with "big sisters" to help them 
with their problems during their first weeks at Rip- 
ple. Being service-minded, the club adopted a Ko- 
rean orphan named Choo Jung to whom the mem- 
bers write letters and send clothing and money. 
Also, the Orange Aid sponsors Fresh-Aids, a fresh- 
man subdivision of Orange Aid which, among 
other projects, holds panel discussions with upper- 
classmen on the problems confronting high school 
girls. Orange Aid is sponsored by Miss Ruth Carter, 
and Fresh-Aids is sponsored by Miss Nancy Lamkin. 

Now in its third year at Ripple, the Future Nurses 
Club, sponsored by Miss Louise Rice, strives to in- 
form Ripplites of opportunity in the field of nursing. 
To do this, the club has various types of nurses 
speak to its members and makes field trips to the 
Indiana University Medical Center and Methodist 
Hospital. Also, the club sponsors a flower booth at 
the carnival. 

Fund-raising during the fall is the main activity 
of the Junior Red Cross. Its motto, like that of the 
national organization, is "Your Heritage, Hope, 
and Opportunity." Miss Rice also sponsors the Jun- 
ior Red Cross. 


Cash counters Patty Allen, John 
Hobson, and Bob Nelson, members 
of the Junior Red Cross Club, add 
up money from the annual drive. 

Future "Florences" Sylvia Turnbull, 
Mary Jane Randolph, Karen Fry, 
and Barb Randolph, Future Nurses 
Club officers, discuss the eye chart. 

Delegates to the Model UN ore Tri-Hi-Y members JoLene 
Kubik and Dolli Jegen and Hi-Y officers Dove Larson 

and Steve Zimmerman. Other Hi-Y officers not pic- 
tured are Stan Isaac, John Lance, and Don Ellis.

Dramatists prove that "the show must go on" 

by Peg Mason 

Debaters conversing on plans and arguments for future 
contests are Dolli Jegen, JoLene Kubik, and Susie Espy. 

To give students speaking poise and to develop 
their dramatic skills is the purpose of the speech 
and dramatics clubs sponsored at Ripple. 

Budding young actors and actresses begin their 
careers by presenting short plays and skits in the 
Understudies Club, sponsored by Mrs. Anne Oben- 
chain. Membership in National Thespians Troupe 
1 170, a higher dramatic group is gained by com- 
piling points earned by work in dramatics. Each 
year, the Thespians, sponsored by Mrs. Donna 
Leigh Collins, have charge of the Varsity Varieties 
and an auditorium during the second semester. 

Working closely v^ith the dramatic groups are 
the Sound and Stage Crews sponsored by Mr. John 
Williams and Mr. Ferd Brumblay. These groups 
build scenery, handle lighting, and operate the 
"mikes" for school productions. 

Arguments are the delight of the Debate Team 
sponsored by Miss Leanna Barker. Projects for the 
year include the Purdue Debators' Conference and 
several Junior Town Meetings. 

Sponsored by Mrs. Bess Wright, the Forensic 
League competes for honors in state and district 
contests in five categories: dramatic declamation, 
committed oratory, original oratory, poetry read- 
ing, and radio speaking.

Co-curricular clubs complement curriculum 

by Kathy Raasch 

Complementing Ripple's academic program are 
its co-curricular clubs. 

Inducted in a ceremony led by members of the 
Shortridge chapter. Ripple's Business Leaders Club, 
sponsored by Miss Grace Cunningham, takes its 
place as a chapter of the national organization of 
the Future Business Leaders of America. At various 
meetings during the year, the group improves its 
knowledge of opportunity in the business world by 
hearing talks given by officers and personnel direc- 
tors of the National Office Secretaries Association. 

Experiments, films, field trips, and demonstra- 
tions fill the year for members of the Math-Science 
Club. Sponsored by Mr. Morris Taylor, the club 
offers Ripple students the opportunity to become 
more familiar with the particular areas of math 
and science which interest them. Each year, the 
club displays several of its projects at the Indiana 
Science Fair. Qualifying at the Ripple Science Fair, 
winning displays are entered in State Contests. 

Members of the Foreigneers Club study the traits 
and customs of the peoples who speak languages 
studied at Broad Ripple. The club's program for the 
year includes correspondence with non-English- 
speaking pen-pals and talks from foreign ex- 
change students on their native lands. Leading the 
club are Miss Elaine Bevard and Mr. Turrell Laver- 
ing, language teachers. 

Watching the complete pottery-making process 
and hearing a lecture on fiower arrangement are 
activities of the Art Club this year. Sponsored by 
Miss Doris Brinkman, the club strives to interest 
Ripplites in art and art appreciation. 

A trip to the Chicago museums tops this year's 
list of Junior Historical Society activities. Sponsored 
by Mr. J. Raymond Hall, this honorary organization 
is for outstanding history students, and is limited to 
a membership of sixty. The club emphasizes indi- 
vidual projects which are carried out in members' 
spare time and may be continued after graduation. 

Inspecting flags as they rearrange the display of UN 
flags in the library are Junior Historical Society Offi- 
cers Mike Brennan, Donn Baird, and Paula Barbour. 

Distilling "water" in the still in one of the chemistry 
laboratories are Bob Calkins and Randy Brown, president 
and vice-president of Broad Ripple's Math-Science Club.

Highlights of the entire sports year include the 
Rockets defeating Attucks in basketball, 
wrestlers winning the city, the football team 
tying arch-rival Shortridge, and the diamond- 
men capturing second in the city. Athletics 
gained in support as well as in participants 
as more Ripplites boosted their teams at 
both home and away sports events. Pep 
sessions revealed a renewed school spirit 
as sports-minded Ripplites faithfully prac- 
ticed, trained, and dieted to keep in shape.

Rocket Diamondmen 

Battling through the 1958 season, the baseball 
team won 1 1 of their 1 5 games and placed second 
in the City Championship competition. During the 
season, the Bairdmen extended their winning 
streak to twenty-four straight victories over a 
period of two years by winning the first ten games 
of this year's schedule to tie the record set by the 
1949-50 Ripple teams. 

The Rockets began the season minus ailing 
pitcher Chuck Holle. The team started off in a win- 
ning way, though, whipping Zionsville and Ander- 
son 10-3 and 10-7, respectively, on the strong arm 
of southpaw Dave Alexander. 

With Holle out the pitching duties fell squarely 
on the shoulders of Alexander and Jerry Barlow, 
sophomore. Barlow handled his chore capably, 
whipping Lawrence Central, 1 1-2, in his first start. 
The following day the diamondmen bested Crispus 
Attucks, 1 2-5, in the first city game.

by Fred Schlegel 

The Bairdmen then upped their season winning 
streak to six with wins over Scecina and Howe. 
Decatur Central and Winamac fell to Broad Ripple. 
The Winamac team provided the first shutout of 
the season for the Rockets as Alexander blanked 
the visitors on three hits, 8-0. 

The following week saw the end to the fabulous 
winning streak. The week started out innocently 
enough as the Bairdmen defeated Warren Central 
and Shortridge by 6-2 and 4-1 scores, respectively. 
The Shortridge game marked the peak of the 
season for the Rockets as they hit well, fielded 
well, and received excellent pitching by "Alex." 

Then came the pitfall. Washington's Continen- 
tals came to Broad Ripple Park determined to whip 
the undefeated Rockets. The visitors scored eight 
times in the first inning, which was high-lighted by 
Dave Sanders' grand slam homerun. Nothing went 
right for the Rockets, and Washington could do no 
wrong. The Continentals went on to win 10-4. The 
following day, all three Indianapolis newspapers 
praised Broad Ripple's baseball record and singled 
out Coach Frank Baird for special recognition in 
salute to his outstanding record.

The Tech game was billed as the City Champion- 
ship game; and it proved to be just that. The Green- 
dads behind pitcher Don Erman edged Ripple 2-1, 
in a closely contested game. The following day, 
the diamondmen hit their low point of the season. 
Pitcher John Hiatt and company of Cathedral 
bested the Rockets, 5-0. 

Ripple broke their three game losing streak in 
the next game by nipping Manual, 5-3, in nine 
innings. The Rockets won the game by scoring two 
runs in the top of the ninth. The next day saw the 
season end as Ripple bowed to Jim South of North 
Central to finish with an 11-4 record. 

Donn Baird led in hitting averages with a .380 
average although he came to bat only 29 times 
because of a mid-season sickness and operation, 
which put him out of action for the remainder of 
the year. Dave Alexander, Joe Aufderheide, and 
Fred Schlegei followed with averages of .362, 
.340, and .333, respectively. Earl Schopp was the 
fifth leading hitter with a .327 average, 

Alexander led the pitchers, winning seven and 
losing only one. Jerry Barlow followed with a 4-2 
record, and Bill Stoelting lost his only start. 

The Reserve Team, under the guidance of Coach 
Bill Sirka, won five of eight games. Pitchers A! 
Stokely and Tom Withrow shared the honors in 
victories over Tech, Howe, Scecina, Washington 

and Warren Central. Cathedral and North Central 
edged the Reserves by a one run difference and 
the Giants of Ben Davis upset them with two un- 
suspected tallies. Pitcher Bill Stoelting moved to 
Varsity during the season in time to take the 
mound for Ripple against North Central. 

Coach Sirka's freshmen played only two games, 
winning one. They bested Shortridge, while losing 
to Westlane Junior High.

Under the firm hand of new Coach Dave Martin, 
the 1958 edition of Rocket Cindermen made a suc- 
cessful showing. In Martin's first year as a high 
school track coach, he led Ripple to one of the most 
successful seasons achieved in recent years. 

The season was initially spurred by the Hoosier 
Relay triumph on the Indiana University indoor 
track. Although official team standings are not 
recognized at this event. Ripple placed better than 
any other Indianapolis team and unofficially tied 
for first place with Fort Wayne North Side. It was 
mere coincidence that Ripple's wins at Bloomington 
were both in hurdle events and that Coach Martin 
was a former Big Ten hurdle champion. The two 
wins were those of Bob Shorter in the highs and the 
team of Dick Frame, Mick Mathews, Ray Bowman, 
and Shorter in the 60 yard low hurdle shuttle relay. 

The inspired Rockets continued their dual meet 
competition and succeeded in compiling a 6-2 
record. The Ben Davis thinclads were the first com- 
petition of the season. The Giants proved to be a 
tune up for the Hoosier Relays as the Martinmen 
went through their paces in a convincing victory at 
the lU Fieldhouse. 

Scoring their initial firsts for the regular season 
were Bob Shorter in the highs, Dick Frame in the 
60 yard dash, John Kingdon placing first in the 440 
yard run, and Steve Frame outdistancing the entire 
field in the half-mile run. 

Rockets took all the relays easily, including the 
240 yard shuttle hurdle, mile relay, two mile relay.

In the cindermen's first outdoor meet during 
spring vacation. Manual v/as the victim of a 77-39 
drubbing. Ripple svs^ept both the 1 00 and 220 yard 
sprints plus an outstanding performance by Gunar 
Grubaums. Gunar missed the school record in the 
broad jump by tv/o inches, winning with a 21 -foot 
3-inch leap. Then, as if Ripple hadn't made the 
Redskins suffer enough, they posted the fastest 
time in the city for the 880 relay, 1 :35:1 . 

After losing at home against Howe to the tune 
of 62-46, Coach Martin lead his squad to North 
Central where Ripple ran over the Panthers with a 
smashing 77-31 victory. 

Thus inspired, the thinclads worked themselves 
up for the meet with powerful Tech. At first, it 
looked as though the Rockets might keep pace with 
Tech; but, although the running events were evenly 
split, the field events favored the Greenclads as 
they pulled through with a 67-42 victory over the 
Rockets. Again taking revenge, the cindermen 
walked over a weak Cathedral team, 83-25. As 
a highlight to this meet. Bob Shorter succeeded 
in edging City Champ Dave Shoemaker from 
Cathedral in both the high and low hurdles plus 
taking the high jump title on the side. 

Clearing the hurdle in good form, Bob Shorter outdistances 
the field on his way to second place in the Sectional.

Ripple's best dash man, Don Poland, strides out to place 
second to City Champ Ray Carter. Poland, a sophomore, 
along with Bill Douthit, Mick Mathews, and Dick Frame 
composed the fastest 880-yard relay team in the city. 

The annual Broad Ripple Invitational proved to 
be a runaway as the Rocket Cindermen rolled up 
a whopping 83/^ points to Shortridge's 45/4/ Ben 
Davis' 23, and Washington's ll]^. The Rockets 
scored 9 out of 13 possible firsts, scoring in every 
event except the mile run, where Shortridge's 
Keenan broke the Invitational record. Ripple cap- 
tured all three trophies by winning both relays in 
addition to the meet. The mile-relay team came 
from behind to nip Shortridge, and the 880-relay 
team finished nearly 50 yards in front only .2 
seconds from the record. 

Previous to the Sectional Meet, the Rockets broke 
a Richmond dual-meet winning streak by downing 
the Red Devils, 55^ to 53/^. Richmond led, going 
into the last event; but the winning margin came as 
the Rocket 880-relay team came home first. Then, 
to complete the dual meet competition, the track- 
men took o trip to Columbus to down the Sectional- 
winning Bulldogs, 69-40. 

In the City Meet, Tech came out on top as ex- 
pected, but the Martinmen placed an honorable 
second. At the Sectional, they managed to grab a 
fourth place title, qualifying eight boys plus the 
880-relay team, and later a fifth place in the Re- 
gional. Two boys were left after facing the stiff 
competition at these two meets. Shorter and 
Poland. However, these two record breakers were 
unable to place in the State Meet.

Tennis squad finishes with three victories 

by Tom Clay 

Ripple's '58 Varsity Tennis Team won three 
matches and lost six, winning three of the last four 
matches. The racket men, coached by Robert Houg- 
ham, were led by Bernie Stein, junior, and Bob 
Swan and Steve Morgan, seniors, posting records 
of 6-2, 6-3, and 5-4 respectively. 

Getting off to a poor start, the squad lost the first 
five matches. After being tripped by Anderson, 5-2, 
the team was edged by both Park and Shortridge, 
4-3. Tech, 6-1, and Howe, 5-2, also conquered the 
Rockets during the season's low point. 

The Ripple squad finished the season by smother- 
ing Crispus Attucks, 7-0, defeating North Central, 
4-3, and upending Ben Davis, 6-1. Ripple fell to 
Cathedral 4-3, in the final match. 

In doubles competition. Swan and Morgan won 
six of eight matches while Bill Brandt, senior, and 
Dave Larson, sophomore, triumphed in their only 
two matches. 

Returning for the 1959 season are letterman 
Bernie Stein, and promising Dave Larson, Bruce 
Gale, and Dave Epstein. 

In intramural action, Bernie Stein won the singles 
championship from Andris Rozite, 6-0, 6-0. The 
doubles title went to Stein and Epstein. They de- 
feated Larson and Ray Ward, 6-4, 6-1 , in the cham- 
pionship game.

Golfers break even 

by Dave Phillips 

Playing a tough schedule, the 1958 Ripple Golf 
Squad finished with a 6-6-1 record. The divotmen 
started slowly by losing to Shortridge and North 
Central. Placing third in the Bloomington Invita- 
tional, the golfers then registered a 1 3^-J4 victory 
over Ben Davis, which later qualified for the State 
Final Meet. 

A dismal defeat in the County followed a 13-5 
win over Howe. After tying Tech, the golfers lost to 
Crawfordsville and West Lafayette. Then losing by 
only one point to Washington, the linksters 
bounced back with a stunning three meet winning 
streak. Starting with a 1 1-4 victory over Southport, 
the squad continued with wins over Warren Cen- 
tral and Manual. In the Manual meet the team 
posted its best season total of 31 7. 

In the final contest before the Sectional, the 
golfers traveled to the Purdue South Course where 
they defeated County and Sectional Champ, Wash- 
ington, 8-7, while losing again to West Lafayette. 
In the Sectional the linksmen posted a 319 total 
which was good for the ninth place in the 26 team 
meet. The Sectional score was composed by Bill 
Richter and Tom Clay with 11 , Cliff Marks with 79, 
and Ronnie Frantz, freshman, with 86. 

Displaying winning form, Tom Clay demonstrates the tee

Campbell cops sixth in state for harriers

Led by Junior sensation Art Campbell, Broad 
Ripple's Cross Country Team posted a one won, 
seven lost record in dual meets. However, Coach 
Mordie Lee's harriers turned in a better showing in 
the large invitationals with Campbell copping the 
Sectional title and placing sixth in the State. Fresh- 
man Dave Snapp captured the freshman division

Cromis goes All-City; Rockets win two 

by Lyie Mannweiler 

Accumulating a long list of injuries during the 
season, the Rocket gridsters compiled a record of 
two wins, five losses, and two ties. With the 
toughest schedule of any team in the city, the 
Ripple grid squad met mostly high ranking teams. 
The number one team in the state, Manual of In- 
dianapolis, 4th ranked Richmond, 18th ranked 
Cathedral, and 23rd ranked Kokomo were on the 
list of opponents. 

Frank Cromis was honored for his outstanding 
play by receiving an All-City berth. He was one of 
the team's leading linemen this year, his second as 
starting guard. John Strickland and Bob Cravens 
also received honorable mention. 

The Rockets were at full strength only in the first 
and last games. Jack Keller, junior halfback, sepa- 
rated his left wrist in the season's opener against 
Kokomo. Upon his return in the game with Short- 
ridge, Keller gained over two-thirds of the team's 

rushing yardage with a 5.3 average per carry. 
Other losses during the year were Steve Woehler, 
tackle, with a chipped hip bone, two quarterbacks. 
Bob Donlon and Tom Withrow, and guard Sandy 
Padget. Fullback John Strickland was consistently 
plagued by a bad shoulder that kept slipping out 
of position during play. 

In the first game. Ripple fought hard to a 1 3-1 3 
tie with the first of three tough North Central Con- 
ference teams on the schedule, Kokomo. This con- 
test showed that the team of Strickland and Keller 
could move the ball up the field with ease. 

The Tech Greenclads traveled to Ripple's Died- 
rich Field to put a mark in the Rocket's losing col- 
umn. Sophomore Bob Stewart scored the team's 
only touchdown as the Rockets went down in de- 
feat with a score of 28-6. 

Scecina met with Ripple for the first time in his- 
tory and left the field as Ripple's first victim. Quar-

season record of two wins, five losses, and two ties. 


terback Wally Scott called the signals the entire 
game and finally went over for the tally late in the 
game. The final score was Scecina-0, Ripple-6. 

Although the Richmond squad did defeat the 
Rockets, 20-1 3, the game showed that the Orange 
and Black had the potential power to be a tough 
team. The big gun of the night, as in others, was 
John Strickland, who scored all the team's points. 
Howe brought defeat to Ripple in the Rocket's 
Homecoming, 19-14. Don Poland ran the opening 
kickoff back 75 yards for the first of his two tallies. 

Poland went "wild" in the encounter with Wash- 
ington by scoring four touchdowns and two extra 
points to lead the team to its second victory of the 
'58 season. 

City Champ Manual clobbered Ripple as they 
revealed their great power by running up and 
down the field with the Rockets, 54-7. The Redskins 
scored twice before Ripple ever touched the pig- 
skin. Rain made the field in the Cathedral game 
very muddy. The Rockets couldn't gather the neces- 
sary speed to score as Cathedral won, 6-0.

The last game, with Ripple's near northside rival, 
ended in a tie. Both Shortridge and Broad Ripple 
couldn't get their defenses to tighten, and each 
allowed the other to score twice. Jack Keller scored 
in the second quarter for Ripple's first touchdown. 
John Strickland then dashed across for the second 
tally to put the Rockets ahead. The Satans fought 
back to tie the score, 13-13. John Crawford, sopho- 
more, who handled the punting during most of the 
season, averaged 39 yards a boot against the Blue 
Devils of Shortridge. 

Broad Ripple finished the season placing seventh 
in the City Standing. Manual had its first unde- 
feated season in 51 years to be the first place team. 
John Strickland led Ripple's team in scoring with 
44 points. Junior halfback Don Poland was second 
with 39 points.

Coach Bob Brown lost six important seniors, John 
Strickland, Frank Cromis, Bob Donlon, Leroy Blo- 
cher. Norm Van Tilburg, and Bob Nelson. Returning 
lettermen for 1959 are Phil Hedrick, John Hobson, 
Buddy Krause, Nelson Quick, and Bill Stoelting. 
Others are Keller, Crawford, Padget, Scott, With- 
row, and Woehler. 

The Freshman Team this year showed prospects 
of filling these vacancies by having a very success- 
ful season. They won five and lost just two. Jay 
Douthit, Danny White, Rodney Young, and Randy 
Minniear all proved that the promise of a good 
backfield was near. 

The Frosh opened the season by beating Scecino. 
They then proceeded to win the next four straight 
games. Washington was trounced by the eager 
Freshmen, 34-6. Howe's Hornets were overcome 
by the Little Rockets, 20-12, as was Shortridge on 
Frosh Football Night, 20-0. 

The "greenies" tripped Manual by coming from 
behind twice to post a 28-21 victory. The squad 
finished by losing the last two games to Cathedral 
and Tech. Freshman Coach Charles Leamon was 
pleased with the 5-2 record. 

The Reserves, comprised mainly of sophomores, 
ended the season with a record of one win, five 
losses, and two ties. The lone victory was over 
Howe, 19-12. Like the Varsity, the Reserves tied 
with arch-rival Shortridge, 14-14. Don and Doug 
Atkinson split the scoring evenly, each getting a 
touchdown and an extra point.

Grapplers take city, tie for Sectional title 

by Mike McKown 

Winning 1 3 of 14 matches in dual-meet compe- 
tition and losing only to Shortridge's State Cham- 
pions, Broad Ripple's wrestling team compiled its 
most outstanding season record. Because of bad 
luck in the individual draws and the loss of injured 
Hal Shipley, last year's state champion. Ripple's 
team strength was hampered in the State Finals. 

However, the team gave its second year varsity 
coach. Bill Sirka, his first City Meet title and Sec- 
tional victory. Coach Sirka's greatest moral vic- 
tories were wins over last year's State Co-Cham- 
pions, Richmond, 32-10; and Ripple's first dual- 
meet victory over Southport, 28-1 6. 

Senior Frank Binford and Sophomore Jim Herald 
represented the school at the State Finals, Frank 
capturing a second place and Jim a fourth place 
ribbon. Both placed second in the Regionals at 
Southport High School. 

Boys having excellent records this year were: 
City-Champ Dick Herald, 18-2; Mike McKown, 19- 
3-1; Frank Binford, 19-4-2; Hal Shipley, 15-2-1; 
Dave Way, 15-3-1; Terry Gernstein, 15-5-1; Tom 
Johnson, 14-7; Jim Herald, 14-9-2; Bob Nelson,

Beamen edge Attucks; 

Sinking the ten foot hook shot that cinched the 39-38 
victory over Attucks is Bob Moon, big junior center. 

by Alan Stanford 

Headlines in the next day's newspapers read, 
"Attucks Flashes Old Sectional Power." What had 
happened? Nothing more could be said than what 
forward John Woody mumbled as he headed for 
the parking lot, "We just didn't get enough points." 

Ripple's high spirited basketball squad had 
bowed out in its first sectional encounter to the 
team that later won the State Championship, 
Crispus Attucks. In spite of Woody's 19 point per- 
formance. Jack Keller's 15, and Don Fledderjohn's 
1 0, the loss of 6'4" Donn Baird was felt in the crucial 
rebounding situation. As the fourth quarter buzzer 
sounded, the Tigers had bested Broad Ripple 
79-65, a margin of only seven field goals. 

Although they lost the first game in the Sectional, 
the Rockets posted an impressive season record of 
eleven wins and seven losses. The year was high- 
lighted by the one point upset of Attucks during the 
season which proved to be Ripple's best game. Rip- 
ple out-rebounded, out-scored, and out-maneu- 
vered the Tigers until, with the help of Keller's 22 
points, Attucks left the floor defeated and knocked 
from their high state ranking. Amid the cheering 
of the Booster Section, the hastily organized boys' 
cheering section carried Coach Gene Beaman off 
the floor, climaxing Ripple's first victory over Cris- 
pus Attucks in eleven years.

Driving hard toward the goal is Jon Merritt as Donn 
Baird successfully screens out his Cathedral opponent. 

The Rockets started the season with five straight 
victories over Lawrence Central, Decatur Central, 
Attucks, Sacred Heart, and Howe; then they lost 
their first game to Ben Davis by ten points. 

After being eliminated in the first round of the 
City Tourney by Attucks, the Rockets were victim- 
ized by a hot Manual team. Taking to the road. 
Ripple faced what seemed to be a six man Rich- 
mond team (the other official was neutral) and lost, 
55-54, after a highly contested last-second play by 
the heavily supported home team. 

Cathedral, Scecina, and Warren Central fell in 
order as the Rockets got back in the winning column 
only to lose Keller with a wrist injury. The Wash- 
ington Continentals capitalized on the weakened 
Beaman team and emerged victorious. After de- 
feating Greenfield, Ripple fell to Tech. Shortridge, 
highly-ranked in the state, defeated Ripple, 73-55, 
before the Rockets finshed the season with wins 
over Noblesville and Greencastle. 

Faking out his close Ben Davis pursuer, Jack Keller 
makes a lay-up on the scoring end of a fast break.

The tough Crispus Attucks team, improving as 
the State Tourney progressed, brushed aside every 
obstacle in its path. The championship, according 
to some experts, was decided in the Indianapolis 
Sectional when Attucks edged Shortridge. Al- 
though being extended to defeat Muncie Central 
and Madison, luck proved to be with the extremely 
tall Tigers. Ripple's one-point decision over the 
State Champs serves as an inspiration for future 
Ripple basketball teams. 

Coach Charles Leamon's Reserve squad showed 

much promise for next year as they were runners- 
up in the City Tourney with Attucks. During the sea- 
son they lost to only six teams out of twenty en- 
counters. Victories were posted over Lawrence 
Central, Decatur Central, Sacred Heart, Howe, Ben 
Davis, Manual, Washington, Richmond, Cathedral, 
Scecina, Warren, Greenfield, Noblesville, and 
Greencastle high schools.

Intramurals provide action for sportsminded 

by Steve Zimmerman 

Displaying fine form, Fritz Haverstick shows how he 
chalked up high scores on the intramural bowling scene. 

Intramurals this year saw many exciting games 
and a few upsets. The fall Intramural scene began 
with football. After many close games, the Apple 
Jacks, captained by John Woody, walked off with 
the loop crown. 

Beginning the winter schedule, bowling drew 
many boys as the popularity of this competitive 
sport increased. The individual leaders were Fritz 
Haverstick, Charlie Deck, and Tom Hedberg, who 
also led their teams to the top three places in the 
closely contested league. 

As Christmas drew near, basketball, the high- 
light of the season, began with intense enthusiasm. 
Basketball is often the most furiously played and 
the roughest of any sport. Mob I emerged as cham- 
pions, edging Beacons in the fiercely contested 
playoff game. Tied for third were the Schizo- 
phrenias and Half-and-halfs. 

Also included to round out the Intramural pro- 
gram, which was again under the supervision of 
Mr. Frank Baird, are table-tennis, horseshoes, soft- 
ball, and tennis. 

Schizophrenia Mike Kelley fires the ball out of the key 
hole as Jim Herald, Mike McKown, Ronnie Bland, Butch 
Coyle, Jim Pontius, Art Campbell, Fritz Haverstick, and 

Alan Stanford fight for position in the Schizophrenia- 
Hot Shot game. Weekly intramural contests kept male 
Ripplites in hot competition for the championship game. 


Sports staff works hours to improve teams 

by Dave Parish 

Residents bordering the football practice field 
don't need to set their clocks at seven o'clock in the 
morning on August 1 5. At this time, they are awak- 
ened as the "herd" rushes out onto the football 
field, loaded down with equipment; and Coach Bob 
Brown yells "Wind sprints," signaling the start of 
calisthenics. Ripple's athletic season has begun. 

As the November winds approach, the lights in 
the gym shine until five o'clock. Gene Beaman, bas- 
ketball coach, directs the strenuous practice ses- 
sions as does Bill Sirka, wrestling mentor. 

In February, the tracksters, under the guidance 
of Coach Dave Martin, can be seen sprinting 
through the remaining snow. Later in the Spring, 
Frank Baird's diamondmen practice on their home 
field. Broad Ripple Park. 

These major sports plus the minor sports make 
up the athletic year at Ripple. Athletic Director Kyle 
Peters arranges all meets and games, scheduling 
top competition whenever possible. 

Keeping a constant check on the equipment used by all 
of the Rocket teams are student managers John LaFol- 
lette, Elliott Gold, John Hulen, and John Nelson. 

Coaches-BACK ROW: Mr. John Williams, Mr. Kyle Peters, 
Mr. Charles Leamon, Mr. Frank Baird, Mr. Gene Beaman, 
Mr. Robert Houghom, Mr. Dave Martin. FRONT ROW: Mr. 

Bill Sirka, Mr. Earl Dose, Mr. Jack Brown, Mr. Robert 
Brown, Mr. William Jessee, Mr. Mordie Lee. Mr. Milt 
Hiatt serves as Physical Education Department head. 


Growing by leaps and bounds. Ripple's stu- 
dent body reached a record high of 2000 this 
year. Interests expanded also as Ripplites 
hummed "Tom Dooley" and learned to cha- 
cha to such old standards as "Tea for Two" 
and "I Want To Be Happy." Boys laughed at 
white tennis shoes, and girls countered by 
wearing even more shocking leotites and 
adopting page boys and long curls once 
again. Skating parties and hockey became the 
rage as Indianapolis faced a long, cold winter.

Seniors, Seniors, S-E-N-1-O-R-S...the Class of 1959! 

by Patty Gates and Nancy Henry 

Looking ahead to a year packed 
with activities and excitement, the 
Class of '59 plunged energetically into 
its Senior year. First on the year's 
agenda came nominations for class of- 
fice. The frenzy of campaigns and elec- 
tions soon became intermingled with 
Homecoming excitement. 

Represented by Queen Patty Gates, 
seniors led the school in the Homecom- 
ing festivities. Floats took shape and 
dance and parade plans were com- 
pleted as seniors realized work was 
part of being an upperclassman. 

Soon Mr. and Miss Riparian candi- 
dates waited with fingers crossed until 
Fred Schlegel and Nancy Holle were 
announced winners. 

Senior enthusiasm set a pattern for 
a new display of school spirit as the 
boys joined the girls in organized 
cheer. This support backed the Rocket 
basketball team in its first victory over 
Crispus Attucks in eleven years. 

Decorating the cafeteria for Christ- 
mas with snowflakes and a huge tree 
was another traditional senior activity. 

Class of 1959's curriculum also in- 
cluded the Senior Mothers' Tea, Prom, 
and Grad Dance. Four years of high 
school experiences were brought to a 
reverent close with Baccalaureate serv- 
ices and Commencement exercises. 

Meeting informally down by White River are 
Senior Class officers John Raeburn, president; 
Steve VanMeter, treasurer; Nancy Henry, 
secretary; and Evy Stone, vice president.

Ripplites worked for good of school, maintained class loyalty 

by Dave Larson, Bill Ferree, Dave Gilliom 

Freshmen entered Ripple in awe 
and expectation. Initiating the four di- 
ploma plan, the frosh studied hard 
for a good start in high school. The 
"Greenies" learned to eat in three min- 
utes, got lost in the halls, and met new 
friends. Freshmen girls solved prob- 
lems and rendered service in Fresh- 
Aids, a subdivision of the Orange Aid. 

The second-year Rockets found 
Ripple's halls, teachers, students, and 
Form 1 5's familiar. They tackled ge- 
ometry, went steady, waited for the 
day when they could drive legally, 
and entered into more activities. 

After a colorful and exciting cam- 
paign, the juniors elected officers and 
began making plans for a wonderful 
prom. Class ring sales and a dance 
provided revenue for their projects. 

Creating crystals, junior officers Judy 
Gilliom, Wally Scott, Sally Rohr and Tim 
Stone work industriously on decorations 
for the Junior Dance, the "Crystal Craze." 

Fresh-Aiders Dianne Reed and Lisa Gatti work on scrap- 
books for hospitals with senior sponsor, Kathy Sconce. 

The big moment is here at last for Broad Ripple Sophomore Larry 
Morrison as he hopefully applies for his Regular Driver's License.

Dotting the city's expanding map, 91 shop- 
ping areas lead the way as Indianapolis 
joins the growing trend to suburbia. The 
north side tops the list with multi-million 
dollar Glendale, largest in the state, boasting 
50 firms. Broad Ripple offers shoppers a con- 
venient municipal parking lot built over the 
old canal, Ripplites flock to these centers to 
shop, to seek employment, or to carry home 
myriads of free samples as spectacular 
store openings vie for shopper's interest. 

Right: Adding holiday spirit to the community, the Moll 
at Glendale is dressed up for Christmas shoppers.

S4. So 


In pri n t at last! 

Doubting that they would ever see their efforts 
in print, the editors slaved, threw parties, and 
complained through 176 economy sized Riparian 
pages. Although the larger sized 9x12 book 
brought many headaches and unforeseen prob- 
lems. Riparian staffers worked diligently until the 
last copy and pictures were in the mail. 

Heartaches, such as learning the headlines 
didn't fit or the dark room had lost the best nega- 
tive, were overshadowed by happier events. An 
evening work session turned into a birthday party 
and a "hate the editor day" highlighted the year- 
book's social calendar. 

The 1,800 final bound editions of the 1959 
Riparian represent more than many hours of hard 
work. To the staffers it means a year of fun, fel- 
lowship, cooperation, and education. 

The 1959 Riparian could never have been pub- 
lished without the patient, willing guidance of 
publications' sponsors, Mrs. Ruth Marie Griggs and 
Mrs. Julia Jean Rhodes. Expert advice from Mr. 
Jerry Nieten and Mr. Dick Brier also proved 

Photographers contributing their time and effort 
to help make the Riparian picture book the best 
and the pages on which their photos appear are:
